Wanted: 1,000,000 Newfoundlanders and Labradorians

The other day a new facebook group came to my attention and peaked my curiosity more than a little. The group is called, "I bet I can find 1,000,000 Newfoundlanders!!".

Created by a Newfoundlander, the idea is to try to get as many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians as possible to visit, add their name and pass the link onto others who might be interested in joining the group.

Here's the link for anyone interested in this little social exercise in networking or just a little fun.

Note that you'll need a facebook account to enter the site. I'm sure most of you probably already have one but if you don't it only takes a minute to register.


And here is a little blurb from the group's creator:

This group is for anyone who has lived in Newfoundland for any period of time, or if their family is originally from there!

People have been saying that it's impossible to find a million Newfoundlanders because there are only a little over 500,000 in the whole province...and I know that. But this group isn't just for people who live ON the island. This group is for ANY Newfoundlander, whether you are in Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, or anywhere in the WORLD!

There have been THOUSANDS of people who left the Island for reasons such as job opportunities.I can't say for sure that I will find a million but I thought I would make this group to find out!

We are everywhere around the world! EVERY Newfoundlander counts in this group so please join! :) and, INVITE AS MANY OF YOUR NEWFOUDNLAND FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE. Just imagine how many people will join if every person who joined, invited everyone they knew from Newfoundland?

P.S: Even though I haven't mentioned Labrador in my group name, LABRADORIANS COUNT TOO! They should know that anyways, we're all a part of the same province :D

Since starting up a couple of weeks ago the group has registered over 26,000 members. Why not check it out for yourself and say hi to fellow Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. You never know who'll you'll find there in the comments area, perhaps an old friend, relative or long lost love.

It's a fun place to visit and who knows just how many members will eventually sign up.
